Charles Nix: Design an Italic Typeface
In this course, instructor Charles Nix takes you through the entire process of designing an italic typeface, building from an upright roman script to the italic form. He shows how to create capital and lowercase characters, as well as punctuation, while examining aspects such as slant, stem width, serif shape, and other fundamental differences between the roman and italic forms. Once the font is complete, he refines it with spacing and kerning, and introduces strategies for generating and testing the final font files.
